David Cameron signals rethink on child benefit cuts
Mr Cameron admitted that the current proposal had been criticised for its unfairness. There was a cliff edge issue which meant that some families would be stripped of benefits.
He insisted that the Government was prepared to look at the way the child benefit was due to be cut and suggested that a new system might be proposed in the Chancellor's March Budget.
For the Prime Minister to acknowledge that the proposal is being reconsidered because it is seen as unfair will be considered significant two months before the publication of Mr Osborne's plans.
